Earlier this month, Oak Park and River Forest High School student Rosalyn Beile was among a small contingent of people from Seven Generations Ahead, the Oak Park environmental nonprofit, who traveled to Madrid, Spain for the UN Climate Summit. At the summit, Beile spoke on a youth panel, It's Our Future, a program designed to equip young people in the area to advocate for climate solutions.
"Who is the 'our' in It's Our Future?" the moderator asked Beile.
"The our in It's Our Future is all youth," Beile said. "Not only is it all youth, but it's the people who are underrepresented in this movement."
You can see a roughly 3-minute YouTube clip of Beile speaking on the panel at: bit.ly/2rBJw90.
